in iraq, where 76 people were killed and almost 100 injured in a series of attacks. it was the latest effort attacks. the deadliest was just north of baghdad where three car bombs exploded within minutes of each other. eight people died there, and 28 were injured. >>> and there were more protests today about the anti-muslim film made in america. while in indonesia, thousands more protested in front of the u.s. embassy in jakarta. back in the u.s. just three days now until the first presidential debate with the candidate spending the next few days intensely preparing for wednesday's showdown. kristen welker is traveling with the president in las vegas. >> reporter: with four mock debates under his belt, the president will rally in nevada before jumping into the ring with his sparg partner mitt romney. president obama got another boost, leading governor romney by four points, 49% to 45%. >> i want to see us export more jobs, export more products -- excuse me. i was -- i was channeling my opponent there for a second. >> reporter: last week romney hinting at his debate approach. >> he's t
. that serious yah is iraq. it's just the twin sister. it's a ba'athist regime ruling a multiethnic society. iraq had a sunni minority ruling a shiite majority with kurds and other minorities on the side. syria has a shiite minority ruling a sunni majority with kurds and other minorities. they are mirror images of each other. now, what happened in iraq was we pulled the pin. we remed e dictator at the top and that led to an explosion sand what american did in iraq was the geopolitical equivalent >> rose: we weren't prepared for what would happen after we removed the pin. >> but then we did the geopolitical equivalent of falling on a grenade. we absorbed the entire explosion. we iraqis most of all. i'm saying our presence there prevented it from becoming a regional conflagration. and we then presided over-- largely because of mistakes originally-- but in many cases it was probably inevitable a civil war as the parties contested the new balance of power. let them each test each other. they finally reached a point of exhaustion and balance. we then midwife add social contract between them and on the
and fought alongside this country prosperous soldiers in iraq and afghanistan -- this country's bravest soldiers in iraq and afghanistan. like all veterans, i swore an oath to defend this country. our country made a promise, too. a promise to support us overseas and to fight for us when we came home. i am here tonight to say that president obama has kept that promise. >> yes, sir! >> i noticed -- i now live with my wife and son in the great state of colorado. many of the men and women with whom i served never returned home. others came home bearing visible and invisible scars of battle. when they and their families needed help, our commander in chief was there for them. from extending veterans benefits to strengthening the v.a. health system, president obama knows that the military is the standard for american values. it was wrong that men and women that i served with could be told that they were not good enough just because of their sexual orientation. [applause] soldiers that i trusted with my life and fought alongside with could be discharged simply because of who they loved. preside
and gentlemen, we are going to end the war in afghanistan as we did in iraq. [cheers and applause] in the process, over the next decade, save over $800 million fifth we are going to come home with that money and bring taxes down to reduce the debt and rebuild america. [cheers and applause] roads, bridges, schools. that will support millions over time. initially, tens of thousands of new, good paying, decent jobs that you can raise a family on. folks, one more thing. in this country, we only have one truly sacred obligation. we have a lot of oigations to the elderly, to the young. we only have one truly sacred obligation. that is to equip and support those whom we sent to war and care for them when they come home from war. [cheers and applause] how many of you either have personally served, have a family member serve, or a good friend who served in either iraq or afghanistan? [cheers and applause] ladies and gentlemen, we owe you a debt that i do not think we can ever fully repay. we know an incredible debt to those goldstar families. every single day, i have my staff check and i p
hard to get this dofnlt i hope we can confirm our ambassadors to iraq and afghanistan, and the continuing resolution to fund the government for six months. republicans say this congress has been unproductive. but if republicans want to know why it's been unproductive, they should take a look in the mirror. benjamin franklin once said, "well-done is better than well-said." close quote. "well-done is better and well-said." so it is time republicans stopped talking about how much they wanted to get things done and started working with us to actually get things done. the presiding officer: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: yesterday dozens of republican senators came to the senate floor one after the other to register their complete frustration with the way democrats are running this place. never before -- never -- have a president and a majority party in the senate done so little to address challenges as great as the ones our nation faces right now. never. i mean, we've got a $16 trillion debt, and they haven't bothered to put together a budget in three years. they ha
of mass destruction were never found in iraq. good his foreign policy centered on going into iraq and getting rid of those weapons of mass destruction was alive. his administration showed remarkable indifference to the plight of most americans. what happened in new orleans and katrina is a good example. mitt romney and the republicans would like to pretend the and ministration did not happen. taking a five trillion $10-year surplus bequeaths to it by the clinton administration and turning into a a giant new deficit and saying to wall street, do whatever you want. we are not going to look at you. he makes the case against mitt romney. that is one of the most important things. and with that kind of cynicism, the special interests to win everything. the only thing we can get our democracy back is if we understand we have got to be active, and it is not just paying taxes and serving on juries and showing up. we have got to be engaged, mobilize, energized. we have got to demand this work for us as ordinary people, as average working americans who need an economy working for us, not jus
and technology to stop iraq from getting a bomb. iran from getting a bomb. he was an all-or-nothing guy. if you are going to fight a war, all the way. >> which, ironically, is what the israelis are asking of obama. draw the line, you are the biggest power in the world. the only thing netanyahu said at the u.n. this week -- the only thing that could change course. i want to respond to my liberal pals. i cannot respond to -- i cannot believe you are covering for the administration when they said five days later that was obviously a terror attack. why pretend that it was a demonstration? >> it would not be a good plan if there were pretended to say something different -- >> it is a good plan because the blogger you draw it out, the less the public cares about it. it works. who talks about it? >> we are talking about it. >> pbs section of the show -- give me a break. >> now you are insulting the audience. >> the 9 people in america who care about this stuff. what about the others? >> i bet they want to kill the people who did this. >> it took us quite a while to figure out exactly what happened, an
, will explain what he did to move away from -- again we were on the precipice of great depression, the iraq war, i think the american people know that we have a tough economy, largely what the republican convention last week was, was hiding their own agenda, a bunch of platitudes and angry insults. people know that we have a tough economy. they want to know how we're going to move forward. we have energized near colorado, here, great volunteers, we're beginning to see great rental strigs. we think we'll be able to build the kind of excitement on the ground to win this election. particularly for the middle class voters in this country, who do you trust to make economic decisions with you at the core? and mitt romney is clearly going to make every decision through the prism of he believes, if people like him get a huge tax break, somehow that's going to trickle down to everyone else. >> another big economic decision that people will have to make is about medicare. medicare has been a winner for democrats. in his convention speech, paul ryan signaled to suggest that the republicans weren't going t
the war in afghanistan as we did in iraq. in a responsible way. [cheers and applause] and come home and invest in our roads, our schools, rebuild our country. ladies and gentleman, that alone will create tens of thousands of good paying jobs repairing the damage to infrastructure in this country. it is simple. on like this new republican party -- and i do not use the phrase "new" lightly -- this is not your father's republican party. this is not even mitt romney's father's republican party. we see a future with the rich and the poor do their part in have a part. where my granddaughter's have ies andct same opportunit rights as my grandson's, where women can control their own destiny and there is no longer any debate about the violence against women act. where we are once again no. 1 in the world in college -- number one in the world in college graduates, where we promote the private sector, not the privilege -- privileged sector. we see a future where america lease not by the example of our power, but by the power -- leads not by the example of our power, but by the power of our exa
closest ally. [applause] my opponent said that it was tragic to end the war in iraq and he will not tell us how he will end the war in afghanistan. i have and i will. [cheers and applause] well my opponent was -- would spend more money on military hardware that our joint chiefs do not want, i will use the money we are no longer spending on were to pay down our debt and put more people back to work rebuilding homes and bridges and schools and runways. this calls for thousands of lives and over $1 trillion. it is time to do the nation building right here at home. >> coming across my blackberry is a summary of some of the quotes. james carvill sang it is not one of the best speeches of the -- saying it is not one of the best speeches of the convention. let's talk about foreign policy. a lot of you have seen the john kerry speech. the really interesting brief. we heard a lot from joe biden. in personal and punchy terms and then you hear from the president. we talked about this on the program dreadnought a lot of talk about foreign policy. it is not a top priority. lest democrats see it as a
, syria, pakistan, iraq -- i met him in person finally before he was going to pakistan. we spent half a day with him. everything that happened, everything composite to his description -- ryan finished in the last years of the bush administration, presided over a transition that was complex and difficult and retired with the highest title of career ambassador. he came back to texas and worked as the dean of a school. at that point, he was looking at a life that would be his own. fortunately, for the united states, the president called again. in very difficult moments, president obama asked him to come back to national service. being the patriot that he is, he did. he left the school and went back to afghanistan as america's ambassador in a moment when we were beginning yet another transition period this afternoon, we have been very blessed to have him come to carnegie to make this stop but his return from afghanistan. he will speak to us about what the transition in that country holds, what the prospects are at why afghanistan still matters to the united states. ladies and gentlemen, p
years ago, because i was going to iraq, i asked you to be there for my dad. and you were. and for last four years, i can say with certainty he has been there for us. [ applause ] in moments both public and private, he's the father i've always known, the grandfather my children love and adore, and the vice president our nation needs. so tonight, mr. chairman, it's my great honor to place into nomination for the office of vice president of the united states, my father, my hero, joe biden. i move to suspend the rules and nomination by acclamation joe bid biden. as a democratic vice presidential candidate. [ applause ] >> the son of joe biden saying he wants to suspend the former rules, the formal roll call, and nominate joe biden. >> i know joe must be emotional right now. when your son calls you a hero, you got to feel it in the heart. we have a motion to suspend the rules and nominate joe biden by acclamation as a democratic party's vice presidential candidate. is there a second? all in favor of the motion say aye. all opposed. the ayes have it. the motion is adopted. pursuant to the co
th. he also failed to mention iraq and afghanistan. more than 55,000 americans have been killed or injured in those wars but mr. romney didn't think the wars were worth mentioning, in his own speech at his own convention. here's how he tried to explain the oversight. >> i find it interesting that people are curious about mentioning words in a speech as opposed to policy. i have some differences on policy with the president. i happen to think those are more important than what word i mention in each speech. >> do you regret opening up this line of attack, now a recurring attack, by leaving out that issue in the speech? >> i only regret you repeating it day in and day out. when you give a speech you don't go through a laundry list. you talk about the things you think are important. >> you talk about the things that are important. doesn't that include wars in iraq and afghanistan? today one of romney's foreign policy advisers criticized the ambassador campaign for pointing this out saying, quote, it doesn't surprise me that they're raising foreign policy because it's another distra
in another war, the war in iraq. the human cost and the extraordinary heroism of this war, it surrounds us. it surrounds us in our cities and our towns. and we'll win this war because of the strength and courage of our own people. some of our friends and neighbors, they saw their last images in baghdad. some took their last steps outside of fallujah. some buttoned their uniform for the last time before they went out and saved their unit. men and women who used to take care of themselves, they now count on others to see them through the day. they need their mother to tie their shoe, their husband to brush their hair, their wife's arm to help them across the room. the stars and stripes wave for them. the word "hero" was made for them. they are the best and the bravest. and they will never be left behind. [cheers and applause] [chanting "u.s.a.!" ] you understand that. and they deserve a president who understands that on the most personal level what they've gone through, what they've given and what they've given up for their country. to us, the real test of patriotism is how we treat the men
in iraq, reformed the stun loan system. no record, steve? >> well, i mean, what ryan is trying to sell there is rationalization. i mean, that -- line in the speech really is -- designed to trigger an emotion in poem. designed to take the swing voters who i am talking about -- administration with a lot of accomplishments. the congress in 2009, 2010 was as accomplished or more accomplished than any congress since the great society days. they can be aware of that at some level. but the calculation there from romney, ryan people, is they -- ultimately want to vote obama out because of where the economy is and how economic anxiety is. they are looking for something they can tell themselves it will make it okay to vote him out. what paul ryan is offering there. again, i'm not sure that will be enough to win the election on but it is a -- testament to the power of how -- bad economy can hurt a president that that sort of strategy has the -- tie right now heading into this convention. >> now, jonathan, the president slammed romney specifically for his failure to address the war in afghanistan
jihadists who taught in iraq. and, yes, they are looking not only to the fall of assad, but creating the american militant. >> is this al qaeda? >> not necessarily at all. and i think you have to future in perspective that these are people that have come to file for their own ropes. this there are some from europe, so many fighters that he saw coming in from france or other european states, you look at the unemployment level there you can young men with no live, just like iraq, this become as magnet for them. ivan watson told me he flew to turkey on a plane load just libyans on board that plane. so they are present. they are on the ground. but it doesn't mean al qaeda. and remember this, what was the fate of those in jihadist fighters in iraq? i saw them lined up on their knees with smuslims behind them respect forced to leave or killed outright. >> and of course the obama administration has sai syrians should determine their own future. but should the u.s. be concerned about islamists getting in as part of -- >> it's too late. because when i talked to the activists in homs, for exam
and iraq. >> i find that sort of understandable. go you think about it, the republicans have been out of the white house since '92. back in '92, the national security threats were other countries. from '92 through 2000, you had members of what became the bush war council involved in national security issues all dealing with iraq. so they come into office in 2001 and they sit down with the clinton beam and the clinton beam said really what you need to worry about is al-qaeda. and what the bush people hear is the biggest threat to our national security is a bunch of guys sitting on a mountain top in afghanistan? >> eliot: it was a foreign language. >> it was a foreign language to them. the inther of 2001 was -- the summer of 2001 was chin tbha, it was russia, it was north korea. the standard national security stuff from ten years earlier. >> eliot: also the residual anger, tbrus -- tbrus ration that the job hadn't been completed. wolfowitz and the others were there at the pentagon saying we want to tbsh the job. >> ri
from iraq and the planned drawdown from afghanistan. in a theme he touched on throughout his speech, obama said the "change" he promised four years ago would take time, but was surely underway. >> our problems can be solved. our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder, but it leads to a better place and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> we will have more from president obama's speech after the headlines and host the debate. at least 50 people i've been killed in a pair of earthquakes in southwestern china. the chinese government says the quakes damaged thousands of buildings, displacing some 20,000 people. the united nations food agency says global prices have stabilized at levels near those of the 2008 crisis that sparked unrest across the globe. ahead of the food and agriculture organization said international action could prevent a crisis in part by addressing the harsh impact of the recent u.s. drought. >> there is a risk of more price increases, but at the moment, there is no evidence to suggest that is an inevitability. the very sharp reduction in u.s. pr
and went to iraq. so president obamaad to put a plan in place and a timetable to get it done. so it may not be as fast as we woulall ke, t the ct the cost of this war, in terms of our human treasure, the most important part, our young people, the casualties to their lives and to their physical well-beingnd their mental -- it's all physical, mental or not. so, yeah, i do think that this is taking to us a place where we should really understand that war, as a resolution of conflict, is an obsolete idea. and we should take the debate to a bigger place, a bigger place. i'll never get over the fact that presideustooks into war on a false premise, that he knew was false, that his administration knew was false, for a different agenda, and look how long we stayed in iraq. >> whether or not it ends up becoming an issue in the presidential race, is this a matteror congress to decide, in terms of when we leave, befo the electorer esidt's call? >> well, it's a combination. because when we won in '06, one of the big issues was ending the war in iraq. and we went to see the president and we said, we'
other way. we're joined by delaware attorney general beau biden, iraq war veteran, and the son of vice president joe biden. may i begin by thanking you for your military service and your continuing public service as attorney general, mr. biden. >> thank you, martin. thanks for alog he me to come on. >> thank you. mitt romney said he would not be getting political given today's anniversary, yet a couple lines into his speech he delivers overtly political comments about leadership, about his opponent, about the direction of returning military. is this man not in control of his own faculties? >> well, i don't know. i'll let the viewers be the judge of that. i know his speech wasn't consistent with what his staff said he was going to talk about, and that is not taking on the president and making this a political day. i'm going to follow the president's lead, the vice president's lead and honor those we lost on 9/11 11 years ago. everyone watching now, you i am sure, people on your staff, i know people, sons, a mother and a father who lost a son, a daughter who lost a father here in delawar
in specifics about his foreign policy goals. >> i will end this war in iraq responsibly and finish the fight against al qaeda and the taliban in afghanistan. >> four years later, u.s. troops are indeed out of iraq. >> i am announcing that the american combat mission in iraq has ended. operation "iraqi freedom" is over and the iraqi people now have lead responsibility for the security of their country. >> in afghanistan, he stepped up troop levels, unleashed drone strikes in pakistan and yemen and rounded up top terrorists including the one whose attack started a decade of war. >> tonight i can report to the american people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda, and a terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children. >> yet with all of these successes, republicans are still trotting out the same line of criticism that the president has not been a strong leader on the international stage. >> unfortunately, for four years, for four years, we've drifted away from our proude
states. there are patriots who oppose the war in iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in iraq. we are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the united states of america. >> wow. you know, governor, i'll call you bill, known you forever, i was with a crowd, african-american crowd in a tough neighborhood north philly before the election in 2008, it's a tough crowd, tough neighborhood. they needed a lot of things they aren't getting there, all right. a lot of poverty. the biggest applause line from candidate obama, i'm going to bring this country together. that's what people got teary eyed over. i hear it here, feel it here, it's still what the country wants. they don't want to be minorities against majorities, straight against black, they want a united country. can this president still do it? >> he can still do it. he's going to do it. what you're seeing now again is that coalition coming together. brian and i are from the west. the president virtually won most of the western states. he won new mexico, he won colorado, ne
stooerevens. he's former navy s.e.a.l. glenn daughtry. he served in iraq and afghanistan. on the ground today more u.s. embassies under siege. the latest in yemen where protestors stormed the embassy, burned the american flag. in egypt security forces have been clashing much of the day with anti-american demonstrators while off the coast of libya, u.s. navy ships have now moved into place. there are warnings across the middle east of massive new demonstrations outside u.s. embassies friday, tomorrow. officials are urging americans to stay off the streets. in the past hour president obama issued a new warning. >> i want people around the world to hear me, to all those that would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> earlier today secretary of state hillary clinton stepped up her criticism of the anti-muslim film that first prompted the protests. >> to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensib reprehen
by president bush in iraq and then afghanistan and that's part of what president obama has actually been trying to, you know, in addition to getting us out of the wars, undo some of that damage. that's not a conversation they want to have. i find it talk about the sabre rattling, noecons going into iran, if we did that, it would be a similar situation, american forces on the ground, american resources not spent at home. it could be morsi we have seen on television now or as we saw with american loss of life coming home. there's a responsible element to this as well. >> you say that. julian, all i hear from people like paul ryan and the other expert on foreign policy, sarah palin, is that this president's affect has been one of weakness, and yet we've seen multiple dictators fall, and certainly american relationships with other nations improve. i don't understand what they want him to do. invade? what do they want him to do? >> that's the curious question. i agree with karen's point, these things are very harmful to the national interest, particularly when attached. to your question, martin, cha
period. according to this new article, cheney continued to argue that we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he kept saying that's not what we ought to be doing. we ought to be attacking iraq. so what did you make of that looking at it. of course, he was always the intelligence guy in the white house. he was between bush and the cia guys guys. he was using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role? >> cheney was instrumental and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by an ideal logical agenda that was based around getting get ing saddam hussein and that movement. considered the unfinished work from 1991 to go in and get saddam hussein. so they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was here in these warnings. and at best in curious about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleeza rice, who i like personally. but she's saying something i'm afraid that's going to be on her record book. she's testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed wi
